7:03 am
we've got some breaking news. >> all eyes on egypt. president obama will speak this hour about the crisis in egypt. >> the muslim brotherhood which backs ousted president morsi stormed two government buildings in giza today, setting them on fire. a state of emergency continues after yesterday's clashes. charlie dag'agata is following developments. >> reporter: good morning. egypt is not only in a state of emergency, it's in a state of shock. now, everybody had feared the six-week sit-in would end in violence. nobody quite expected this level of blood shed. this morning, soldiers broke down what little remained of the main protest camp bulldozing the remnants of protesters who fell in yesterday's bloody crackdown. the supporters of ousted president morsi, the muslim brotherhood, called yesterday's violence no less than a
7:04 am
massacre. first, police fired tear gas into the crowd to break up thousands of demonstrators. then security forces fired bullets. automatic weapons gunfire rang out at the site of the main demonstration. a makeshift clinic soon overwhelmed. most of the victims had gunshot wounds to the head and chest. giving weight to claims from protesters that snipers were firing into the crowd. but egyptian television supporters of the military-led interim government, shown what appear to be gunman within the crowd opening fire at security forces too. these images show what happened when protesters trapped an armored vehicle and managed to push it off an overpass killing four policemen. today, the muslim brotherhood said their fight is not over. they vowed to bring down what they called the military coup and said they remain committed to peaceful demonstrations. traffic has begun flowing thank you the streetank you the streets
7:05 am
that had been the scene of the sit-in. after yesterday's carnage, nobody here would ever describe the situation as getting back to normal. egyptians are waking up to an uncertain future this morning. now, an overnight curfew last night meant that the streets were virtually deserted. we saw eastern and police checkpoints. and more concerning than that we saw lots of groups of men wielding clubs and machetes, determined to hold on to the streets. charlie and norah. >> as we mentioned, president obama is interrupting vacation to speak this hour about the crisis. major garrett is on martha's vineyard. >> reporter: good morning, norah and charlie. we expect that announcement from president obama in about 15 minutes. every indication is the president will condemn the violence in strong terms. and also take one more step we believe, to register his displeasure with egypt's military rulers.
7:06 am
aides tell us the president is reviewing options to register his displeasure and try to get egypt's attention for good. up till the last moment the united states urged the egyptian military to avoid bloodshed and was ignored. with president obama golfing during his vacation it was left to secretary of state john kerry to express outrage and plead, again, for political compromise. >> egyptians inside and outside of the government need to take a step back. they need to calm the situation. and avoid further loss of life. violence is simply not a solution in egypt or in anywhere else. violence will not create a road map for egypt's future. >> reporter: the turmoil in egypt starkly illustrates the limits of u.s. power. >> the united states probably has less influence in egypt now than any time in decades but that reflects u.s. influence throughout the region at the moment and potentially around
7:07 am
the world. >> reporter: amid fears egypt could be headed towards civil war, the u.s. must worry about egyptian control of the suez canal. republicans like senators john mccain and lindsey graham recently back from egypt, have criticized criticized president obama for refusing to call the political ouster of democratically elected egypt mothbrotherhood morsi a coup. a former bush national security adviser, condoleezza rice shared recently in an interview with charlie rose. >> will tell you, i'm very worried that, in fact that's not what the egyptian military has in mind. when i see them putting their own pictures on the wall i'm worried they don't have in mind the mediate return to civilian leadership. >> reporter: senator mccain in an interview with the "wall street journal" called the president's policy in egypt, quote, a colossal failure.
7:08 am
called for the immediate end of $1.5 billion in military and financial assistance the united states provides to the egyptian military and its transitional government. white house aides say the president is reluctant to take that step fearing it might cost what little leverage the white house has over this transitional government. that leverage and its benefits difficult to measure in the current atmosphere. >> and that point, senator mccain who just came back from egypt, said that the united states bears large responsibility for the bloodletting that's going on because of our failure to have a relationship with the military generals there. what's been the white house response to that kind of criticism? >> the white house response is as follows. there is tremendous communication between the pentagon military leadership there and this military government at the head of the transitional egyptian government. it's been what the egyptians have done after the united states communicates its request not to have violence. clearly the military made a
7:09 am
dividend deifferent decision. the administration believes if it takes aide off the table, all communication will cease to exist. >> major, thank you so much. investigators in alabama trying to piece together what caused a u.p.s. cargo plane to crash. the two pilots were killed in wednesday's accident. the plane narrowly missed hitting homes in birmingham where people are finding metal scraps on roofs. manuel bojohrquez. >> reporter: investigators will be back to the crash site today. they're still trying to recover the black boxes. behind me is where the forward section of the aircraft came to a rest. it's incredible how close it cape to hitting this neighborhood. in fact, we can show you exactly how close it came. it clipped trees here beyond that intersection.
7:10 am
and the plane then crashed behind a church where it broke apart. the front section of the plane was sent thrust 200 yards away where it landed on top of that hill. u.p.s. flight 1354 crashed in an open field about half a mile from the runway. the wreckage is just yards away from eddie smith's home. >> i'm glad it's in an empty field. it could have been in a field. close call. very close call. you see where it's at. i live not two blocks. >> reporter: nearly 12 hours after the crash, parts of the wreckage were still smoldering. keeping ntsb investigators from getting to key evidence. including the black boxes which could shed light on the pilot's last moments. >> the initial information we have subject to verification, is there was no distress call from the pilots. >> reporter: flight tracking data shows the plane made a rapid descent as it neared
7:11 am
birmingham international airport. about three times faster than normal. air bus, the plane's manufacturer, and u.p.s. are working with the ntsb and fbi to determine what went wrong. >> human performance. systems, operations air traffic control, weather. we will be looking at everything that may be relevant to the causation of this accident. >> reporter: the a-300 aircraft is no longer used for passenger transport in the united states. a law enforcement official tells us at this point there is no evidence of terrorism or foul play. charlie and norah. >> manuel, thank you. new numbers overnight show foreclosures dropped 31% last month from the same time a year ago. more importantly, 2013 is shaping up to have the lowest
7:12 am
foreclosure rates in six years. >> however, nearly 1 in 5 homes with mortgages still considers underwater. jon hilsen wrath with the "wall street journal." how significant are these numbers? >> very significant. they're part of a broader trend. something economists call leveraging. americans have done something heroic really in the last five years. faced with all this debt after the housing boom they've made a lot of progress on paying it down. almost one-eighth of the household consumer debt got basically paid down or written off by banks in the last five years. and we're seeing that in foreclosure rates. banks are repossessing -- the rate of them repossessing homes is coming down because household finances are in better shapen this they were a few years ago. >> yet some states are seeing an increase in foreclosure stats. we see maryland up 275%.
7:13 am
what -- explain what that means. >> well, think you're going to see different parts of the country progressing and regresing at different rates. what's interesting to me about the increases is we're seeing a lot of them in the northeast. new jersey new york connecticut. so it looks like that part of the united states is not doing as well in this recovery. and repairing household finances. >> this year looks like a very positive year in the whole arena of housing recovery as a central part of the economic recovery? >> it certainly does. and the big question here is whether we see follow-through in the economy. so this is -- the stage of the story -- or americans have repaired their finances, are they going to start spending money? there's this idea called the paradox of thrift. the flip side of thriftiness we're seeing from households they're not spending a lot of money. the economy is growing very slowly. the big question right now is do
7:14 am
people start feeling better enough about their finances to start spending a little bit and getting the economy growing faster and creating more jobs? that's really what we have to start seeing next. a faster growing economy. more job growth. that's what will keep this recovery going. and the republican party hopes to change the perception by some that it is too old and too white. party leaders are meeting in boston this week. today, the gop launches a new program called rising stars. it highlights young republicans. the chairman says the party is going to change the way it reaches voters. >> our party's got to be a party that's not just about poor people down the hallway that the rnc is doing outreach. >> an online database to find fresh faces for media interviews. >> 14 homes in utah are gone this morning.

7:17 am

"usa today" reports this morning a tentative plan is in place. hdh is produced naturally in the body. it can also be delivered artificially, giving athletes a boost. don dahler is with us. >> it is believed players learned about the deal earlier this week in a union memo. the plan calls for a number of things, including asking retired players to voluntarily take hdh in an attempt to figure out how it impacts an athlete's normal leaves. with just two weeks to go before
7:32 am
the start of the 2013 season it appears the nfl is moving closer to testing players for human growth hormone. according to "usa today," a preliminary plan involves studying roughly 100 former players with two-thirds of them receiving hgh and the rest a placebo. blood tests will be conducted to help determine what's being called a decision limit. >> the goal is to see what a player who is actually taking or a former player in this case who is actually taking growth hormone looks like and what a normal player looks like. you can draw the decision line. >> reporter: all current players would also be subject to blood tests before the study. once hdh testing begins a total of 40 players will be chosen at random from eight teams every week. a first offense would result in a four-game suspension. it was back in 2011 when the league and union cleared the way for hdh testing as part of a ten-year collective barringening

7:36 am
>> that's right. there's a dirty four letter word called cost. the fact these asteroids are so close to the earth, in eight years, in eight years time we could send a rocket to nudge one of these asteroids so it orbits the earth, then we can mine these asteroids at our leisure as they orbit the planet. >> what's asteroid? >> an asteroid is a rock from space. they range from a few inches to several hundreds of miles. which means if we nudge one of these asteroids, we have to aim it very carefully. oop, there goes new york city. if you nudge it the wrong way. these are huge rocks from space and they are potential meteors. >> that's the good and bad. >> it's the good and bad. yeah. michio, as always fascinating to have you. there's the sound bite you nudge it the wrong way and there goes new york city. a growing controversy this morning surrounding singer miley cyrus' latest hit. we can't stop is number two on the hot 100. as bill whitaker reports, cyrus

. two groundbreaking studies were published wednesday and they could lead to major changes in diagnosing treating and preventing some of most common forms of cancer. dr. david agus is a cbs news con trb tributer and he leads the west side center at southern california university. let's start with the study in the journal nature where scientists say they've uncovered the genetic signature, of many of these kinds of cancers. what did the study find? why do you think it's so important? >> right. it's really a groundbreaking study. 7,000 specimens representing 30 different cancers were sequenced. what they found was 21 different
7:45 am
patterns ss relating to cancer. you could trace these patterns back to dna changes. we could find the causality. about half of them now we know what caused it. we look at a cancer now and look at the dna and say, hey, this one was caused by edd edd by smoking. the key is you know the initiating cause, you'll do much better at treatment. if you're a plumber and you go into a house and there's a leak you could turn off all the water mains and turn off all the water in the house and it will stop the leak. by vaguehaving this data we can know where the leak is and turn it off for the cancer. can turn it off for cancer. >> david, what this means for the average person who has cancer. >> what's exciting, year ss ago sequencing a genome used to cost
